Bacon wrapped, cheese filled jalapeño poppers.

When we organize a get together with friends and family to watch the basketball games we like to spice things up when it comes to food. There are always micheladas, ceviche and guacamol for everyone to enjoy but this year I wanted to add something different.  After much thought I decided I would try to make some stuffed jalapeños or jalapeño poppers.  When I decided to make them I did not think they would be such a complete hit. Even my mother in law liked them which is pretty unusual. But then again what’s not to like: cheese filled, bacon wrapped jalapeños are sure to please everyone!

IMG_0534 For this recipe I used Farmland® bacon which is slow smoked over real wood for maximum flavor. For decades, Farmland® has taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique and you can really taste the difference in every delicious bite.

  5. Wrap each jalapeño half with one slice of bacon
  6. Place bacon wrapped jalapeños on a foil covered baking sheet and bake for 10-15minutes or until bacon looks well cooked and crispy.
  7. Remove from oven let stand 5 minutes

This bacon wrapped and queso stuffed jalapeño recipe combines the spicy kick of the jalapeño peppers with the delicious crunchy bacon filed with gooey melted cheese.  To top it off the chipotle crema gives it a soft and smokey flavor that finishes it off.  Besides the jalapeño poppers you can also offer some delicious sausage and egg hot dogs made with Farmland® sausage, I made some for our football watching get together last month and everyone loved them too.
